Halifax Regional Municipality – Road and Sidewalk Asset Management Audit Report Released

Transportation and Public Works does not have complete long-term plans and measurable targets for the condition of HRM’s road and sidewalk assets, Auditor General, Evangeline Colman-Sadd, said in her report released today, June 26th.

“We expected management to have documented plans to support Regional Council’s priority of having a well-maintained transportation system,” the auditor general said.​

The audit found there are no performance targets for road and sidewalk conditions.​ “Establishing targets and measuring results is important for management to help determine whether a program is successful and achieving intended results,” the auditor general said.​ ​

The audit also looked at the construction inspection and warranty practices at Transportation & Public Works, and Planning & Development.​ ​ Both business units need to do a better job of monitoring to ensure work was properly completed, and that new subdivision roads and sidewalks are acceptable before taking over from developers.

The report is available on the auditor general’s website:  https://hrmauditorgeneral.ca/
